I’m trying to get people to see that we are our brother’s keeper. Red, white, black, brown or yellow, rich or poor, we all have the blues

This site is dedicated to the wealth of talent in the city of Glasgow, Scotland.  Glasgow has won many awards over the years but when I realised that there was no catalog of the great Glasgow Blues players I felt the need to put this in place.

This project is ongoing and will focus on a total on 100 Glasgow Blues musicians.  The images attempt to capture the character of the artists in a Glasgow location that means something personal to them.  A connection that has developed over time.  The target is to interview and photograph 100 artists and the site will be updated on an ongoing basis.

Accompanying each image is a short biography of the artist or interview and, where available, a link to more information about them.

 

The “Special Guests” section is dedicated to UK and International artists that touchdown in Glasgow when they are touring.

Glasgow, The Blues & Photography are three subjects very close to my heart and I hope you enjoy watching this site develop.  I hope it will encourage you to visit the fantastic venues in the city and support these amazing musicians.
